'Got back today from the villa. We had a fantastic holiday which was mainly

because Casa Maurice is absolutely stunning. It far exceeded our

expectations. The weather really went well for us and having the pool meant

that during the day we didn't often venture too far from the terrace. We did

have a look at the beautiful beaches in the area but as expected the sea was

way too cold for us brits so back to our villa we happily went'

Many thanks again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a brief message to say thank you and how much we enjoyed Casa Maurice. After the first day the weather was as good as we could have asked. The area was delightful and the villa was lovely, we got to experience both golf courses. It was a very enjoyable time and i can envisage us being repeat customers for you.

Spacious Villa, well maintained and great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a large extended family group (12) and the Villa was more than spacious and well furnished with quality furnishings. The villa is very well maintained and was very clean. The kitchen is well equipped with every amenity that you could wish for. The pool and gardens are very well maintained and our grandchildren practically lived in the pool! There is a well equipped games room which younger members of the group enjoyed. Prior to our visit Chris the owner's communication was excellent regarding instructions for our arrival and also suggestions for car hire etc. (Luz car hire was excellent). We used the BBQ on several occasions as the weather was fabulous.

The Villa is within walking distance of the beach, the Marina (which is lovely) and the centre of Lagos (the old part is lovely to wander around). We also hired a car and visited some lovely places within easy driving distance. (Luz, Monchique, Sagres). We also eat at some lovely restaurants in Lagos (you are spoilt for choice). There are lot of supermarkets in and around Lagos to choose from and a local shop for smaller items (5 minute walk).

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

On arrival Villa was ready, clean and gardens were well looked after.

Pool was very clean (been to villas before where pools were quite dirty) Dinnis was there to meet us, and explained everthing We had to call him during the week for a bedroom light that needed a new bulb. He was there within the hour.

Very safe place to stay with children and the pool alarm is a bonus.

Plenty of space, so that you do not feel like you are all living in one room.

Taxi were easy to book to go into Marina or Old Town.

Plenty of places to eat and plenty of shopping.

We booked a boat trip through Chris, and it was amazing.

Chris made sure that everthing was made perfect and it was very nice to meet him.

Only down side was that we should have booked for longer as no one was ready to come home.

Would definitely recommend this villa and will go back in the future.

Owner's Response: We do try to work as a team to ensure that all our guests enjoy a wonderful accommodation experience. These are very thoughtful comments from such a delightful extended family group, whom as mentioned by Pamela, the organiser, I had the pleasure to meet during their stay. Thank you.

A truly 5 star experience

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my family of five needed a good holiday and wanted to visit Lagos, which is wonderful place for a family visit. We chose Casa Maurice as it seemed to tick all the boxes for us, and I am thrilled that we did. The villa is superb and has everything that you will need for a lovely family holiday. It is also in an ideal location being close to everything. We walked everywhere and we feel fitter for it! Chris the owner had service to a tee and looked after us in the planning and ensured everything was perfect for our arrival. He also arranged our return transfers which worked very well and was stress free. Dinis the local manager met us on our arrival and showed us around and answered any questions we had, which were few as we had lots of info from Chris. The pool is amazing and the kids loved it and the games room which is a great facility was brilliant to use. We will be back! Thanks Chris - regards the Cormacks

Stunning villa - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of booking a villa and I am delighted with how it went. I was initially anxious about the logistics of the process but the owner Chris was so friendly and provided extremely helpful information. He has clearly given a lot of thought to the assistance and comfort of the guest that stay at Casa Maurice and this extends to your time in the villa itself too.

We chose to rent a car and drive to the villa which turned out to be extremely easy. The drive from Faro is only about an hour and a straight forward drive at that. Upon arrival we were able to follow Chris clear instructions to get into the property. After a long day travelling we were not disappointed with what we found once we were inside.

The accomodation was spacious, clean and well furnished. It was well prepared for our arrival with towels and bedding set out as we had requested.

My financee and I stayed at the property for 9 wonderful days and made the most of the Algarve Christmas sun in the lovely pool.

The town is a short drive away (you could walk it but we were being lazy!) with a large, reasonably well stocked supermarket only 5 mins away. We weren't overally impressed by the town but it was pleasant enough and we were only there to relax so it didn't much matter. The marina has some nice cafes. We didn't eat out at all but the kitchen had everything we needed to cater for ourselves (including cooking Xmas lunch!)

The property's games room added some great extra fun.

The only negatives were that there is no wi-fi (although there is at the marina so this is isn't much of a negative), the TV is quite small considering how far it is from the sofas and finally that we had to leave!

We had a wonderful holiday and if you have any hesitations about booking this villa... don't!

Legendary Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Maurice in August 2011 and we found the whole experience to be excellent right the booking through to the transfers’ home. We went as a group of 8 Adults ranging from mid to late 20’s and couldn’t fault our time there except we wish we had booked for 2 weeks. The Villa was beautiful and the facilities were just fantastic with more than enough space for our group. We ate in most nights making use of the BBQ but we also found loads of restaurants in town. The local shop is about 10-15 mins walk and only another 10 mins on to the supermarket or port. The beach is in easy reach and the girls made a few afternoon trips down there whilst the boys took advantage of the large pool and games room, though being a rather competitive bunch we would suggest a Water Volley Ball net would add further value to the pool but we managed to fashion one using some rope and tables which led to hours of endless fun with the whole group playing in the pool at once and quite comfortably. We found the town of Lagos to be fantastic with loads of restaurants, bars, clubs and Duna Beach added a fantastic end to the evening. There is so much to do in the area and for all ages though the Deep Sea fishing is highly recommended we did our trip with Seafaris and as a group of 4 came back with about 30 good sized fish which we then cooked on the BBQ which we all rather enjoyed.

All in all the whole holiday was fantastic and we couldn’t fault anything, Chris and his local team were fantastic and very helpful. We would defiantly go back and we highly recommend Casa Maurice it would suit all ages from families with small kids, young and senior adults! Put simply it was a Legendary Holiday and to Chris and his team we say thank you for making it so!

Owner's Response: Myself and my team led by my on site Manager Dinis are delighted that these clients clearly enjoyed themselves and took full advantage of what is on offer at 'Casa Maurice' and also in the immediate area. It is very gratifying to hear clearly the enjoyment that this party had during their visit to Lagos. We aim to provide an excellent accommodation experience within our modern properties, each of which are within easy walking distance to all amenities including the beach, marina and the town centre. As these clients reported 'Casa Maurice' has every facility that you will need to enjoy a wonderful holiday, The property is also close to the shops and some excellent Restaurants, making your stay as stress free and as relaxing as possible. If you are considering accommodation in the beautiful area of Lagos we would equally like to look after your own party in the same way. Whatever the occassion or reason for visiting you can be sure of a warm welcome and an assurity that you are reserving of one of the best properties available. Chris (Owner)

Casa Maurice

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the holiday at Casa Maurice in Lagos.

We were a big family group of ages ranging from teenager to pensioner and found everything we required at the villa

There is a bit of a walk from the villa to the town but easily manageable, we tended to all walk down and a few of us would walk back, those of us who didn't fancy it would grab a taxi for €5. There is a small short cut which cuts out a little bit; as the road bends about 100 yards from the villa there's a little path over a bit of scrub land which leads to nearest bar called Bar Silva.

On the subject of Bar Silva we didn't spend as much time there as we'd have liked to. We went in for something to eat at lunchtime on the day of arrival and the food was excellent and well priced (as was the beer) and the people in there were very friendly. We flew in on the day of the David Haye v Wladimir Klitschko fight and a few of us wanted to watch it, although it was on pay per view they arranged for it to be shown that night which made a few of us very happy; until the result at least.

Casa Maurice is spacious and clean and everything is well maintained. The games room was well equiped and things like bats and balls were all usable and in good supply. Kitchen equipment was plentiful and again in good order, we also bbq'd a couple of times which was good.

One final thing is regarding the owner; a huge thank you to him for being so helpful, not only in his extensive preparation which is thorough, but if we did have any questions they were responded to almost immediately. He also arranged our car hire through a company called Luzcar which was superb, everything was included in the price we paid, no extras for additional premium waivers or wheel issues, or even additional drivers; they even dropped it off at the villa and picked it up when it was due back.

As we required a little more accomodation we did also rent one of the owners other local apartments. It was similarly well presented, we just didn't really spend any time there, it was used as an overspill for sleeping in.

We will definately be returning to Casa Maurice, and the holidays that we go elsewhere will have a lot to match up to.

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to be able to ensure an excellent accommodation experience and as this guest has stated 'Casa Maurice' is ideal for a family group of any size and age configuration, up to 12 persons can be accommodated very comfortably. It is a modern and well equipped property which proves ideal for children and adults alike, everyone has their own space and the layout of the property is such that it also can lend itself to a smaller and more intimate group of a single couple, to between 4,6 or, 8 persons. Yes, the games room is very popular and we have table tennis, pool and snooker, electronic darts and table football for the guests to enjoy. As Paula has pointed out we always like to ensure that the games room is well stocked and this is checked at the beginnming of each rental and on a weekly basis, if any additionl spares are required the mangemnt team have plenty of spares in stock. Finally, so many families enjoy the fact that 'Casa Maurice' is so perfectly placed for reaching the town, beach and marina on foot, each being within easy walking distance and with the taxi fares so reasonable, due to the short drive, you can collect any heavy shopping by cab. The location of the property provides the guests with a genuine 'No Car Holiday' experience.

'Casa Maurice' is ideally located just behind the Meia Praia beach, in a hamlet of deluxe villas on Rua Aristides De Sousa Mendes, in Albadeira Parque. The position of this modern villa ensures that you benefit from privacy in attractive surroundings, with the advantage that the beach, marina and town are all just a short walk away. The fabulous 'Marina de Lagos' features many excellent restaurants, bars and deli cafes, in a wonderful setting amidst dozens of boats. The old town of Lagos is accessed across the swing bridge in within the Marina enabling you to explore the beach marina and town easily on foot. Beautiful, tranquil, & secluded are words which sum up this Villa and its location. The excellent swimming pool is 35ft in length and can be heated to the safe bathing temperature of 28 degrees, by prior arrangement.

Due to the villas ideal location a car is not essential during your holiday, although, if you would like to explore a little further afield, a car will be able to be rented nearby from one of the many local car hire companies. There are arrangements with local Car Hire companies who know the property and will bring a car to you and will collect it again afterwards. There are excellent beaches available within walking distance of the Villa, with the famous Meia Praia just a twelve minute stroll away.

Other Activities: Cafe culture, eating out, shopping, beach relaxation, Dolphin watching, swimming, walking, nature study and ornothology
